About Big Bear Jeep Jamboree
Retrace the Steps of Miners and Loggers
Participants in the Big Bear Jeep Jamboree will travel along mining and logging trails used 165 years ago during the gold rush era. The rock-and-boulder-strewn trails offer incredible views of Big Bear Lake and California’s High Desert. Participants will cross streams where miners used to pan for gold and traverse the mountain’s edge for breathtaking views.
A Tradition Dating Back to 1953
The first-ever Jeep Jamboree was organized by 4×4 pioneer Mark A. Smith in 1953. He journeyed across the Sierra Nevada Mountains using the old Rubicon Trail. The following year, Willys Motors, the manufacturer of Jeep vehicles, became involved with the adventure and Jeep Jamborees have been an off-road tradition ever since.
Mandatory Requirements and Restrictions
To participate in the Big Bear Jeep Jamboree, participants must have tow points and CB radios are strongly encouraged.
